Here Are Fluxus Co-Founder Ben Patterson’s Five Favorite Sounds

Fluxus pioneer, artist, and double bassist Ben Patterson has died at the age of 82. In this illuminating, entertaining, and fairly adorable video from 2012, produced by the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis, Patterson discussed Fluxus and listed his “top five noises” at the moment. Frogs in a pond, a flock of geese, and a Coke can opening make the cut. Watch the video below to hear his other selections—and the sound he really doesn’t like!
